Education (Administrative Provisions) Act 1907
The Education (Administrative Procedures) Act of 1907 set up a number of systems for schools. Many of these related to the health of children, with some looking to enable high standard school places for poorer schoolchildren.
Under the legislation local authorities were to set up medical inspection units. Over the course of their schooling years, each child would be given a medical examination on no less than three occasions.
Grant aided schools had to provide free, means tested, places. This was based on the previous years intake and saw an increase in the number of free places of 25% of higher.
From 1912, medical treatment in schools would be free. Remember that this was before the introduction of the National Health Service. However it was not compulsory to provide medical treatment, so the provision was limited.
